Contagion Clasp Discussion

A cheap one you can throw in to proliferate would be Contagion Clasp. Since Elspeth creates three tokens, you can sacrifice one for Plaguemaw Beast to proliferate. You can untap it and all of your other creatures with +1/+1 counters with Ivorytusk Fortress.

It's too janky, but Rakdos Riteknife + Contagion Clasp can force an opponent to sacrifice all their permanents. You'd just need to equip it to a critter and have that critter sacrifice itself to get the initial counter.

For token production, Mastery of the Unseen. It's not techically tokens, but like others have said, your options are quite limited. Throw some Zoetic Cavern into your deck to get the benefits of the lifegain, maybe?

deck looks good and budget! just some ideas to help get by some front lines could add, Rogue's Passage , Whispersilk Cloak just for an easy way to get by. i play against a lot of mass token decks so i find these help me set up some combos.

Whispering Specter is nice if your looking to remove some chances of a blue deck saving their counters. So many people run green that Praetor's Grasp anything from a creature to some mana ramp.

Glissa, the Traitor is a good add if you have trouble keeping all your artifacts up.

Triumph of the Hordes has been a game ender for me since the amount of poison you can get off in a single turn. plus if you have Contagion Engine & Contagion Clasp. Phyrexian Swarmlord is a high cost but does have the chance to refill your board if your wiped out (:

Hi friend! Looking good so far! Some thoughts:

Add Gaea's Cradle to go along Growing Rites of Itlimoc. You don't need to be told why lol. If you do throw in Voyaging Satyr, who also just goes well with Nykthos and Rites.

Throw in Birthing Pod from the maybeboard. Seems like a good way to mimic your commander in a way.

No Swiftfoot Boots?

Rings of Brighthearth and Magewright's Stone were suggested for my Brion deck a lot and they seem to work here.

Concordant Crossroads is an interesting one. Now you can grab all the creatures turn of and start attacking, and all the creatures you cast have haste. Little risky but may pay off for you.

Finally, some proliferate effects like Core Prowler, Contagion Engine, and Contagion Clasp might be good if you want to ramp into the bigger things faster. Maybe you want to curve up though so I don't know.

Possible cuts: Temur Sabertooth, Ramunap Excavator, Vitalize, Triumph of the Hordes, Bow of Nylea.

Good luck! Can't wait to play against it!

Opal Palace is good for this commander

You need more player interaction too, it seems like you're playing singleplayer EDH. You need to get more targeted removal. Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Malicious Affliction, Bone Splinters, Putrefy and Anguished Unmaking are all good, but there are probably a few in green and white that I missed. Run Abzan Charm

Read the Bones is an amazing draw card.

Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist can get a lot of work done.

Cryptolith Rite is really good when you have a lot of creatures.

You also may want to look at Contagion Engine, Contagion Clasp and proliferate cards in general. Those can be fun.

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice will win games

Also, look at cards that give you life when creatures enter the battlefield, like Healer of the Pride.

Tendershoot Dryad, Mycoloth, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Winding Constrictor.

Seems like a fun deck!

I'd recommend Sporesower Thallid and/or Sporoloth Ancient to speed up your Saproling production. Sporesower seems like a better option for your gameplan as it interacts well with Winding Constrictor and Spore Flower.

Psychotrope Thallid may be a good "saproling-sink", while Thallid Germinator is a potential finisher for your deck.

I just don't quite understand Obelisk Spider in this list. The only card it seems to interact with is Tezzeret's Gambit. Maybe if you had some more Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine or Grim Affliction.

I'd also consider Scatter the Seeds or Fists of Ironwood instead of Flash Foliage, if you intent to increase your Saproling count. However, Flash Foliage may have its use if you intent to use it as a "cantrip fog".

I have a somewhat similar deck (though it is not Common/Uncommon only), in case you want to check!BG Thallids & Saprolings

Cool Commander!

Have you ever tested with some Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Grim Affliction, Spread the Sickness, Throne of Geth, or Volt Charge?

Happy brewing!

Thran Turbine & Heartstone benefit any creatures who need mana to make saporlings.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a no-brainer, especially in a deck as hungry for mana as this one.

I brewed a GR fungus tribal deck and my thoughts were cards like: Wrap in Vigor, etc. are essential since spore counters are so slow.; Fog, etc. let you avoid damage without chump blocking with your fungus/saporlings; and Contagion Clasp, etc. get you more counters faster.
